lisle Pa., H. S. '08, Y. M. C. A. Athletic 

He is a fine young man with irreproachable 
hair and neat appearance. A favorite with 
Miss Hastings according to Enfield's story. He 
could do much better work in his classes if 
he were not so occupied in his fatherly care 
of his more shady and irregular classmates. 
And, my, but he has nice hair, the beauty of 
which is enhanced by tasteful arrangement 
and incessant care.

Jennie was discovered by Dr. Bennett 
and promptly shipped to Fairmont State Nor- 
mal School as the only living specimen of her 
kind. Since her arrival here her greatest de- 
light has been working for the advancement 
of the Y. W. C. A. 


Morgantown, W. Va. 

Morgantown High School '0 8. 

To those knowing Miss Moon she is a 
bright and constant sphere that makes earth's 
commonest things appear poetic, romantic 
and tender, hanging with jewels a cabbage 
stump, and investing a common post or a 
pump, a currant bush or a gooseberry clump 
with a halo of dream-like splendor. 

Fairmont, W. Va. 

Mozart, Y. W. C. A., Athletic Association, 
Y. D's., L. T. C. 

Elizabeth is characterized by her love for 
the languages; especially the one without 
words. She has never fallen in love, although 
she has strong tendencies in that direction. 
With her cheerful disposition she scatters 
sunshine wherever she goes and it is needless 
to say that it leaves its impression. 


Cameron, W. Va. 

Cameron H. S. '07, Athletic Association, 

This winsome damsel is referred to by Mil- 
ton. He says of her: "Bright eyes rain in- 
fluence, etc." Miss Byard at one time aspired 
to the position of assistant manager of the 
Dormitory. Failing in this attempt, she has 
not yet made up her mind, as to what her 
next move will be. Perhaps it may be to get 
on the Lea (man) ward side. 

Fairmont, W. Va. 

Lyceum, Sec. B's., Fairmont H. S. '0 9. 
This demure maiden whose face perpetually 
expresses childish delight except when mo- 
mentarily crossed by a summer shower very 
early attained an infantile reputation. She 
is the youngest sweet innocent of the class. 



Fairmont, W. Va. 

Mozart, Mannington H. S. '09. 

This high sounding name is derived as fol- 
lows: Mo-mos the Latin, custom, rg — the 
Welsh, rg or rig, an — the English article. The 
name therefore signifies a person who is in 
the habit of getting rigged which no doubt 
accounts for Miss Morgan blushing so often. 
She is noted for her taste, acute perception, 
and ready discrimination in literary criticism. 

Spencer, W. Va. 

Mozart, Athletic Association, Girl's B. B., 
Editorial Board Bulletin, V. Pres. Owls., B's. 

Mary combines a wide variety of talent. 
She succeeds equally well in all things she 
undertakes. As a basket ball player she is 
hard to beat, as a writer for the Bulletin few 
are her equal, and as one capable of giving 
advice to school teachers no one dares hope 
to excell her. For further information call 
on the charming young lady herself. 



Fairmont, W. Va. 


Blessed is the man that invented sleep. So 
says Miss Yost in the Methods class. Every 
day at 2:45 she turns her head to one side, 
completely covering her face with a huge 
black hat, and sleeps peacefully through the 
recitation. Janie has no fear for her future 
success in life as she is saving all her energy. 


Fairmont, W. Va. 

Mozart, Mannington H. S. '0 9. 

Goldia is a perfect woman nobly planned, 
she warns, comforts and commands. The 
girls at the Dormitory think of her as a spirit 
still and bright; with something of an angelic- 


Wallace, W. Va. 

Harrison County Croup, Y. M. C. A., Chair- 
man Devotional Committee, Owls, B's., 
Athletic Association, Shakespeare Club. 

As a student that has added luster to the 
Fairmont State Normal School during 19 9- 
1910, Miss Orr, who comes from Wallace, W. 
Va., is chief. She presents an array of talent 
and scholarship upon which any school might 
look with pride. 

Fairmont, W. Va. 

Fairmont H. S., '0 8. 

Martha is a very studious girl and con- 
templates training the young Americans. She 
was always of a very timid nature, but her 
classmates hope that in the near future she 
may overcome this. Brown is her name, 
single is her station, happy will be the man 
who make the alteration. 



Watson, W. Va. 

Mozart, Classical Club. 

"I am for woman's rights." This senti- 
ment is voiced by Elsie, a loyal and energetic 
student of the F. S. N. S. Whether Miss Little 
thinks every woman should have a vote or 
should have a voter is a matter for discus- 
sion. However, she spends most of her time 
gazing at the leaning Tower of Pisa. If you 
don't understand ask some one in Prof. 
Roger's Chemistry class. 


Jane Lew, W. Va. 

Mozart, Chairman Mid-day prayer ser- 
vice, Y. M. C. A. 

Ernest is one of a group of men of whom 
their countrymen should be proud — Bene- 
dicts. A few years ago Mr. Knight was suc- 
cessful in persuading a charming lady to mar- 
ry him for better or for worse. He is a 
thorough student, especially well liked by 
Prof. Rogers and Miss Hastings. 


Burton, W. Va. 


What an ideal type of manhood, how well 
versed in. knowledge! He is quite a dreamer 
and spends most of his time looking dream- 
ily into the future, and who knows what he 
sees? Perhaps himself addressing a large 
audience who proclaim him as far surpassing 
Cicero. Those of us who know Mr. Lemley 
know that he knows a "Little." 


Morgantown, W. Va. 

Mozart, Morgantown H. S. '0 9. 

Leona, the effervescent, would not be found 
wanting in any sphere of life, particularly not 
if weighed in the balances. Her favorite study 
is Economics. Under Miss Abbott's motherly 
guidance she has acquired a great propen- 
sity, for reading in the Library. 


Fairmont, W. Va. 

Ellen, by some called Irish, was born in 
view of the Normal, and has devoted all her 
days to the pursuit of wisdom. Her fun- 
loving disposition has never yet gotten her 
into trouble, but at times we tremble lest the 
poor dear be caught. Ask her why she puts 
on "Ayers."

Verne is a blithe chap with an uncontroll- 
able propensity for early rising in the morn- 
ing. As an athlete he is hard to beat. It is 
skill not strength that counts, you know. He's 
in the game from first to last, and no one elsoi 
can play so fast.

Lyceum, Y. W. C. A., ex-Secretary Lyceum,

President Y. W. C. A. 

Mary is one of those girls you read about, 
but seldom meet. She has brains, and her 
heart is in the right place, being situated im- 
mediately under her fifth rib. Her readiness 
to aid anyone in need of assistance, her af- 
f ible manners and winning smile have won 
for her a well deserved reputation. 

Fairmont, W. Va. 

Fairmont H. S. '06, Lyceum, High School 

"Mark when she smiles with amiable 
cheer. And tell me whereto you can liken 
it." She is noted for her dignity and firm- 
ness of purpose. She is one of the suffering 
few who have chosen to be school teachers 
all their days. Inasmuch as Mable is reward- 
ed with success in every task she pursues, we 
feel assured that sometime in the future we 
shall be proud to recognize in her one of the 
world famed instructors.

Daisy is a great girl in many ways. She 
was raised on Mellin's Food and eats prunes 
every morning for breakfast. She thinks 
women need not despair to fly, and is trying 
to be real good in order to grow a pair of

Her modesty and reticence have, until 
lately, kept Ada Back. But once having dis- 
covered her talents she has come to the front. 
Since she has begun taking an active part in 
social affairs we no longer fear that she will 
be left on her papa's hands.

Vice President Senior Class, Editor 

Lawrence arrived in these parts several 
years ago. It is supposed that he walked here 
in a somnambulistic state, for he has been 
somnambulating ever since. He has ten wives 
in Utah, and it seems that his stay in the F. S. 
N. S. will not prove futile.

Grafton H. S., Lyceum, Girls' B. B., Athletic 
Association, Secretary Senior Class, Edi- 
torial Board Mound. 

Enola is a modest young lady whose chief 
occupation when not busy in the Training De- 
partment is talking. She is dignified and 
scholarly and was never known to be rattled 
in recitation. She is a base ball fan of the 
first degree. She never misses a game. Her 
presence in the grand stand lends courage to 
the team, and her advice in baseball, as well 
as in other matters, is often sought by the 
base ball manager. 




Fairmont, W. Va. 

Fairmont H. S. '0 9, Mozart, B's. 
Esta is one of the few good little girls in 
her class. Her career at the Normal has been 
above reproach. Esta was never known to 
laugh during a recitation (?). Her locks are 
not more sunny than her disposition, and 
her name not more full of mirth than her 
laughter. "There's nothing ill can dwell in 
such a temple." 

Mannington, W. Va. 

Mozart, Owls, Y. 

D's., Athletic Association, 

Fay has many ardent suitors, but none of 
them suit'er. She holds them»off in haughty 
disdain. Her favorite study is chemistry, in 
which she made such progress that the doc- 
tor advised that she be taken out of school 
lest she overstiulv. 


Wilsonburg, W. Va. 

Mozart, Graduate Broaddus Institute, Teach- 
er in Shinnston Public School two years. 

Miss Hanna is a shy modest maiden who 
never disturbs anyone's equilibrium, never ex- 
presses her opinion on any question however 
important. Her still and quiet attitude, how- 
ever, brings results, as Miss Heck daily smiles 
on her excellent work in the training depart- 

New Martinsville, W. Va. 

M. H. S. '0 6, Lyceum Society, Y. W. C. A. 

Lulu created her first disturbance in the 
early part of the eighties, and has been keep- 
ing things moving ever since. Her jovial 
laugh may be heard from early morn till late 
at night. Her sunny disposition will aid her 
in her school work and in after life make 
some gflre-side cheerful.

Student Body. 

This product of Marion County came to 
this institution of learning with nothing to 
recommend him but his own self-evident abil- 
ity. He has farmed, taught scchool, worked 
in a prune factory, and done the people. The 
marvel is how he has done so much in his 
short existence. The future will no doubt 
find him famous. His favorite pastime, and 
he is mighty successful, is doing the Faculty. 

Moundsville, W. Va. 

Moundsville H. S. '09, Mozart, Shakespeare 
Club, Y. W. C. A. 

Mary's home is in the Dormitory, but her 
heart is in Pittsburg. She asked us not to 
tell this, but it is too hard to keep. Mary 
believes in going to all the spreads, staying as 
long as you can, and eating as much as you 
can. The way to Mary's heart is through her

Vera, like Portia, is noted for her suitors. 
She is often heard to exclaim: "I like all of 
them part of the time ,but could like one of 
them all the time." Be careful, boys, she is 
like a honey bee.

Ethel is a glib garrulous girl given to gay 
gamboling. When she sings all the little 
birds are seen to put their claws in their ears 
and listen. She thinks it is possible for her 
to succeed Patti. 

Fairmont. W. Va. 

Lyceum, Treasurer Senior Class. 

Grace has the distinction of being the 
smallest member in the class. Her position 
in the Senior Class, however, is large accord- 
ing as her s ature is small, for she is treasurer 
which is a very difficult and weighty position. 
Grace's hobby is the study of the Modern 
Lar.gii iges. She expects to spend the coming 
summer travelling in Europe.

Ruth is noted for her colloquial powers 
and attractive personality. She came over 
with the Pilgrim Fathers. Guides will show 
visitors the spot where she landed on Ply- 
mouth Rock. Some historians think she 
hasn't landed yet, but is on her way over. 
She is one of the favored few who can recite 
without studying. Her favorite character is 
the Artful Dodger of Dickens. She expects to 
teach school in the Philippines.

Mozart, B's., Fairmont H. S. '09. 

Martha made her debut upon this terres- 
tial sphere a few short years ago. She has 
received all her extensive education in the 
public and Normal schools of this city. Martha 
has never believed in hard work; she thinks 
it injurious to health. She seldom bestows 
her affections on anyone, but is true as steel 
to the favorite few.

Chas. is noted for sticktuitiveness. This 
brave young Spartan has tried to stick to too 
many things this year, consequently he daily 
chants through the Normal Hall for the other 
boys' benefit. "It is better to have loved and 
lost than never to have loved at all." Cheer 
up, Charles, all things come to those who

Anna is an ambitious girl whose one aim 
(to quote Matthew Arnold) is "to see life 
steadily and see it whole." Her watch words 
are culture, learning, and discipline. She is

be entitled "The Love Letters of a School- 
girl." She is easily flattered but be careful,

A few years ago there was great commotion 
in Weston, over the escape of one of the in- 
mates of the asylum. A hurried call was sent 
out for the Landis bloodhounds, and after 
many days of wearisome search Miss Kemper 
was located at the P. S. N. S. She has proved 
sane on all occasions, except when Chuck 
Reed called at the Dormitory. At this time 
she showed signs of fear, and took refuge in 
her little room.

"He that chooses me must give and hazard 
all he has". It is doubted whether any other 
girl in Fairmont is as changeable as she, but 
poor dear she will some day learn to be more 
stable. However, she is very popular and 
spends most of her time flirting with the boys. 
She says school teaching is her chosen pro- 
fession, but we believe she will soon be ab- 
sorbed in domestic science.

Martie, one of the survivors of the John- 
stown flood, came to the Fairmont State Nor- 
mal School in the Year of our Lord one thou- 
sand nine hundred and six. Miss Keck at- 
tacked our course of study with courage equal 
to the immortal six hundred. Here she has 
great and ample opportunity to cultivate her 
deep appreciation of the beautiful.

Her diligence and perseverance have made 
her a worthy member of the Senior Class. We 
must say that despite the fact that through- 
out her Normal career the sterner sex has 
monopolized most of her time "Still the 
wonder grew that one small head carried all 
she knew."

Mary, why that pensive brow? What dis- 
gust of life hast thou? Change that dis- 
contented air, frowns become not one so fair. 
Mary is one of the select few that came to 
us in the year '09. Exclusive of her ambition 
to become a Coogle's wife, her propensities 
seem to lie along the line of teaching and 
painting. She may not be disappointed in any 
of her expectations.

Among those that have shaken the sides of 
the students of the Fairmont State Normal

This quiet little Dutch maid came early 
in life to this part of the country from Pa. 
She was regarded as a rare child by her 
mother, and one who was expected to shine 
in any dark corner. If she keeps up to her 
present stmdard her mother's fondest desires 
will be realized. Since her arrival at the 
F. S. N. S. she has proved herself equal to 
the situation on all occasions.

Lyda is neither brilliant nor stupid; above 
all he is not artistic. No. he doesn't see much 
in art, but he does see whit good hard com- 
mon sense dictates. He has executive ability 
too, as has been shown in his management of 
the Dormitory. To sum it all up, Stark is 
sober, honest, straight-fGrward, farsighted, a 
mighty fine fellow, and one always to be re- 
lied upon.

He is one of the original sailors of Cap'n.

Agnes first began to tilk in the early 
ninties, and has made rapid progress in that 
direction ever since. If when called upon to 
recite she does not know what to say on the 
subject she chooses a topic on which she can 
talk fuenMy. Her meek disposition is indi- 
cated by the sheep bell on her arm.

Ida first began to torment her parents on a 
May day in 1800 ( ?). She received her early 
education in the public schools of Harrison 
County. After playing the role of school-marm 
for several years Ida made her presence felt 
in Fairmont. Although of a somewhat shy 
and retiring disposition, her affections when 
once aroused are measureable only by the 
Metric system. With someone to take her part 
she will train our country's youths and cause 
the young idea to start.

This giant and prodigy of strength was im- 
ported some years ago at a great expense 
from Monongalia County. If he would raise 
his head and straighten out his legs he would 
be at least seven feet tall. If he stood on a 
two foot stool he would then be nine feet 
high if his awkwardness did not make him 
fall off. Guy is a mighty great man in many 
ways. There are few offices in the student 
body which he has not filled.

Homer, who is said to be the finest fellow 
in school, hails from over the briny deep. He 
does a regular land office business in funeral 
orations. He maintains single handed the 
dignity of the Senior Class ( ? ) . He is by far 
the best athlete in school and has been our 
mainstay in athletics for lo, these many years. 
It is rumored that he will fill the place of 
Wagner with the Pittsburg Nationals next 
year. He is a descendant of Louis, the Pious, 
and has certainly descended a Whole lot.

B. Hemmie Chuck, known to fame and 
other companions simply as "Chuck", hails 
from Boothsville. He is the youngest son of 
his father, tall, slim, sleek and slender (?). 
From his jangle he is supposed to be a Dago 
and to have bluffed his way into this country. 
"Chuck" doesn't believe much in books and 
for this reason his recitations are all original. 
He is in training for the stage — the last stage. 
His talents are too numerous to mention, and 
he himself has trouble in finding out what 
they all are. He is modest, shy, and retiring 
(late) never being in society more than eight 
nights out of a week. His cadaverous condi- 
tion arises from love-sickness.

Ernest, sometimes called Marmonides II., is 
the original wandering Jew, whose experience 
of two milleniums would certainly be defec- 
tive without a stay in the Fairmont State Nor- 
mal. He is tall and slim, rather a prolonged 
eclipse in shape. He has divided his long stay 
on earth between two continents, but the 
superior attractions of Fairmont will doubt- 
less keep him here the rest of his time.

Oral Jones, the original old John Jones, is 
popularly called "Jonie" for short. While he 
is a pure West Virginian his "show me" at- 
titude might well lead one to believe that he 
is just fresh from the Missourian jungles. His 
farsightedness and good judgment have won 
for him a place among our few standpatters 
who are ever willing to contribute toward a

Cocoa comes from the city of Peth where

young in years, but wise in judgment. In 
recitation she always proceeds with a very

a calamity unutterable. She tells us that 
teaching is her ^ v *?sen vocation.

Ida, better known to her friends as Tom, 
is a product of Doddridge County. She spends 
the greater part of her time studiously de- 
vouring the notes which she has taken in Miss 
Protzman's music class. Of course such in- 
dustry is always rewarded for she gets "A's" 
on her music tests (?). She also spends con- 
siderable time in walking and taking violent 
exercise in order to reduce her flesh. She is 
noted for her bravery, for it is known posi- 
tively that she made a trip to the Fleming 
graveyard after dark. She was not frightened 
but felt homesick.

Rose has a host of admirers inside and out- 
side of school. She is quite an humorist, and 
often makes very facetious remarks of cur- 
rent interest. One of these remarks is sup-

out a doubt she longingly and lovingly looks 
at the "Rays."

Callie arrived in these parts during the 
summer of 1909. She entered upon her 
studies in the training department with a 
great deal of zest, and the result is that she 
has become quite an important personage in 
the said department. She is an artist of con- 
siderable note. No doubt she will become a 
noted pen artist since she monopolizes most 
of Mr. Lee's spare time.

Blanche, who has very pronounced views 
concerning matrimony, is a lassie of a loving 
and tender age. Her chief bug-bear is Latin 
VI. and when not employed in the art de-

the greater part of her time poring over the 
seventeenth chapter of Caesar's Gallic War, 
which is a very simple and child-like narra- 
tive of bridge-building.

His favorite name is Ikey. He contemplates 
entering the ministry???- Undoubtedly he 
would be popular at the sewing circle. He 
has a beautiful bass voice for which Miss 
Protzman is very thankful. He cultivates 
his voice with care and a harrow which ac- 
counts for its flesh creeping tones. He is 
usually seen in company with Chuck Reed, 
and for this reason they are familiarity al- 
luded to as "the goldust twins". 


ELL, we've taken ourselves seriously, and at 
times, not many to be sure, we have had 
glimpses of ourselves as we really are; but L 
fear we shall not he able to determine our exact de- 
gree of importance for many years to come; and 
maybe, some day (who knows!), after many un- 
successful attempts to satisfy ourselves about our 
worth-while-ness, we shall know for sure that we 
can be useful. 

But, be that as it may, we know this of a cer- 
tainty that the majority of us have spent a most 
interesting' four years in this school. Of course, we 
came up from the ranks; we had our little squabbles 
about things in general that were not important; we 
got sore at each other; we knocked the faculty, we 
kicked the president; we growled, grumbled and 
grouched one day only to forget it the next. 

But with all our troubles, real and imaginary, 
we've had a fine time. In fact, I feel sure that ours 
is the most docile and harmonious senior class that 
this school has developed in the last half dozen years. 

You may probably say, dear reader, that we 
have been indifferent, that we have not stood up for 
our rights, that we have been too easily influenced, 
one by another. I do not believe this has been true. 
Ho often in these years of oar lives we let our sense 
of importance disobey our better judgment. I won- 
der after all, and I think you will agree with me, 
whether decided opinions and quick conclusions are 

an indication of the development of those maturer 
qualities that belong to a man as we Americans 
understand that term. 

But here we are getting serious again; we are 
taking ourselves seriously when we ought to be get- 
ting a glimpse of ourselves as we really are; or, 
better still, as we really have been in the past four 

I suppose our greatest trial has been what is 
commonly known as the training department with 
that indomitable will at the head of it, reinforced 
by another indomitable will which has many quali- 
ties in common with the first named indomitable will. 
Well, these two indomitable wills willed that we 
should, if necessary, do three periods work in the 
said training department and get credit for one. 
We revolted at first, we proved to our own satisfac- 
tion that the said wills had no authority to change 
the course of study, but in spite of our anger, they 
cheerfully smiled and said, "Get Busy!" So we 
sort of got in the habit of doing it and now, to save 
our lives, we cannot tell whether we like it or not. 

Such is life in a normal school, and 1 suppose 
we will have similar experiences later. 

But in the midst of all our troubles we have felt 
the unspoken sympathy of our molecule man. If 
you do not know him, look him up — it will help your 
digestion. If he didn't know an atom from an 
atomizer, he would still be invaluable to all senior 


classes because lie never worries, he never knocks, 
and — would yon believe it? — we never knew him to 
lose his temper. We mention him because it is with 
such help ;is he has given that we have been able 
t<> keep sweet through it all. 

On the other hand, we have had many real joys 
that more than compensated us for all our troubles. 
We have worked for our school, for our societies, 
and in our various organizations, religious and 
otherwise, and it has keen to us a very real pleasure. 
Of course, we have gotten much from our books and 
teachers — all that is implied. We have had a num- 

ber of social events which have been enjoyable, in- 
deed; and we have had some most exciting times 
in connection with our athletics. 

I might go on indefinitely in this way but it 
would be merely a repetition in a little different way 
of the thing already suggested. 

It need only be said further that our happiest 
days have been spent in this dear old school and 
that leaving her with the many associations dear to 
us, will he one of the saddest events of our lives.

Sis-boom-ah! Juniors! Juniors! Rah, rah, rah! 



The Junior class is mighty, 
The Junior class is great, 
It can't be beat unless you cheat 
In West Virginia State. 

It's noted for its brightness, 
It's noted for its work ; 
Especially in Geometry 
Of which we dare not shirk. 

We take our place in Chapel, 
Which no one dares to cut; 
We are tempted though, quite often, 
When we see the door is shut. 

We trip down stairs so lightly 
At. a very lively gate; 
We hear a call, well known to all, 
And know what is our fate. 

The Freshies and the Sophies 
Are making strides our way, 
We should set a good example. 
For they'll take our place some day. 

The posters that were thrown around, 
The Freshies did not like; 
After they were read by every one, 
They soon were out of sight. 

It. was only an initiation 
Which each class has to bear: 
111 feelings now have passed away. 
And all is bright and fair. 

Sixty-five Seniors will leave us this year, 

Some will laugh — some shed a tear; 

Some will get married, and some will be teachers, 

But very few in the class, I think, will be preachers. 

We are sorry to lose the Seniors, 

Yet glad to see them go; 

When you come to commencement next year, 

We'll be in the very front row. 

HAZEL A. HOLT, Class "1911' 


When commencement day is over, 
And our many, this year, "grads," 
Saunter out to practice "teachin," 
''Waggin" knowledge by the scads; 
Juniors then will he called Seniors, 
Sophomores will be made to know, 
That to reach the goal before them, 
They will have to grow and grow. 

It is not the intention of the historian to give an extended account of the accomplishments of the 
class of '11. The many things which have transpired during the past year are too valuable to donate 
gratuously to the public. So you must be contented with a few minor points, which we think will enable 
you to judge of their remarkable greatness. 

' Darwin's theory of the evolution of man, only illustrates the wonderful changes that have been 
undergone by a great many of the present class. It certainly shows material of the highest type, 
when in two years time, or less, people can be changed from typical Freshmen into modest and 
level headed Junior, recognized as leaders, and as the ones who have had a marked influence in helping 
to raise the standards of the school to the bight plane upon which they now securely rest. 

From Fresbie green, bay-seedy back, 
And greedy howling Sophomore pack, 
The Junior standeth free; 
Leaving his outgrown shell, 
By -life's unresting sea. 

If history were made only by the clash of arms and bloody conflicts, we would be compelled to say 
that this class is without an extensive history. For neither Gettysburg's nor Waterloos have been their 
greatest deeds. But on the contrary, realizing that in these days of progress the world is chifly inter- 
ested in the man who moves it, and likewise a school in the class that leads it, they have ever been quietly 

searching for truths, which they have so successfully put into practice that at present they stand alone, 
towering above the clamoring' masses. Not as mighty giants, with swords and shackles in hand, but as 
real living light-houses sending forth their radiant beams to guide the restless throng safely past the 
dangerous shoal, into the harbor of intellectual attainment. 

Athletic honors we now must divide, 

And send a large portion to some Junior's side; 

In foot-ball, basket-hall, base-ball too, 

'Twas usually some Junior that pulled the team 

In various offices dignified high, 
Twould only take space to puff them to the sky; 
As presidents, treasurers, 'tis now the rule, 
That they furnish more than the rest of the school. 

And likewise 
Tn class work, they never take a back seat. 
But can with the best of them always compete; 
And now 'tis expected to hear teachers say, 
'Twas one of those Juniors that got the big "A." 

Their unbound success is well illustrated in the following sagacious words recently spoken by the 
faculty, who said: "Blessed are the Juniors, who earnestly and persistently try to reach the highest 
ideals held before them by us; for they shall receive pleasant treatment, high grades, and conscientious 
feelings of duties well performed." 

Lives of Juniors all remind us, 

Seniors, make your lives sublime; 
Sophomores, Freshmen, they've left for you, 
Footprints on the sands of time.

We are a bunch of "Juniors" 
Whose fame was ne'er surpassed; 
We're following near the Seniors 
And soon they'll be outclassed. 

Wayne and Leda, Harry and Grace, 
Ocie, Ethel and Homer; 
Then comes Margaret's smiling face 
And Grady says he loves her. 

We list ourselves as follows, 

But not as we should rank 

For Arlie Hatfield and Darrel Kline, 

Might think that we were cranks. 

Alice Parker and Harry Scott, 
Julia Swisher and Glenn, 
And Clara Wilson next is thot 
To go with Howard Shinn. 

Beulah Lake and Hastings, Linn, 
Josephine, Carl and Myra, 
Neva Kramer next comes in 
With Lou and Bessie Byer. 

Etta Willis and "Kate" McCool 
Have an eye on Walter Layman, 
But Vevia Elliott says they're fooled 
For there's Miss Lola Freeman. 

"Jonnie" Bock and Kline Koon 
Are in the line with Amos — 
Susan comes and joins us soon 
And then the line is famous. 

"Lyss" Knapp is just the candy, 
When with his "Blanchie" dear; 
And John Ford is quite handy 
When Isis Hutton's near. 

Midget Barns and Hazel Black 
Line up with Clarence Lee; 
Who should follow in their tracks 
But Beulah and Kennedy. 

Earle and Ransel next we see, 
Coming along with Grover, 
Then Lena Parks and Ada Dee 
And then the fun's all over. 

The line is marching well along, 
With Lona and Edna Wright 
Crowded on by Miss Wilfong, 
With Jesse at her right. 

Hattie Martin steps in line 
With Oscar Edwards, smiling; 
Lawson and Bertha pass the time, 
Their studious hours beguiling. 

Then Carter Fleming comes with Dawn 
And Carl Carter makes a fuss 
Because he is the last to see 
The place the Seniors left for us. 

And when the years have rolled away, 
And we review the past 
We hope to see, as others saw — 
The JUNIORS not outclassed.

One, two three, 
Sophs we be — 


The Freshmen wear a silly grin, 
The Seniors look so pale and thin, 
The Juniors have no look at all 
While wandering lonely thru the hall. 

We're the folks who won great fame, 
And we're Sophs in more than name; 
Onward, upward with good will, 
To the place the Juniors fill. 

All glory to the Sophomore Class; 
Their standing Ne'er has been surpassed, 
And as we climb to a higher place, 
It will be with cheerful grace. 

Watch us as we move along, 
Cheering this old world with song; 
Things must brighten as we pass 
Thru the halls to every class. 

When our Normal days are done, 
When the battle's fought and won, 
We will look into the past 
And cheer our grand old Sophomore Class. 
— W. E. BUCKEY. 



History in the making. What arc we doing? What 
have we clone? As history is a record of events, we are 
carried to the events themselves; these being linked in 
an unbroken chain with each member of the class. Many 
are the pleasant associations of the past year, and with 
pleasure will we look back on them. 

This record is but a faint attempt to relate our 
history to others. Deep down in the recesses of our 
hearts where the tablets are inscribed, never to lie 
erased, do we ponder the doings of these days. In years 
to come when we are out in life, and have grown weary 
in the struggle for existence, we may look back perchance 
at this written record and then, and then only will we 
appreciate the fellowship that was here enjoyed. 

In the fall term we took possession of the held. 
'I'he class styled Freshmen, that gave the 190Q class such 
a struggle for supremacy in the Basket Ball field, is the 
one that took the honors this year. Of course the oppo- 
sition was great, but with Watkins determined to win, 
Prickett with the ball in the air, and Morrow with it on 
tlic tloor, aided bv the long arms of Kline, strengthened 
by the Stout man. who was greatly helped by Ikickey 
and Michaels, the goals were shot and the games were 
won. And then look at the star player of the school 
team. When Dale got his fingers on the ball, two 
strokes were added to the score. Dale belongs to the 
class of great men. and that is the Sophomore class. 

On the night of April 12, there waged on the 

Campus, a tierce battle. Those Freshmen had obtained 
a foothold on the mound and the sturdy Sophomores 
marched forth to vanquish the enemy. The command 
was given; long and fierce was the struggle; but what 
could withstand the advance. Steadily towards the top 
of the mound advanced the attacking party; at last with 
a mighty shout the tree was reached and the battle was 
won, regardless - of posters and threats. 

We have done many things in the past year. One 
of which was to let the eagle wing touch us and give 
us the inspiration, the thrill that told us we could soar 
above the mountains of prejudice and see the foothills 
of possibility, and beyond them the mountains of great 
things. There are no Alps. We have conquered, are 
conquering, and will continue to conquer. When a 
difficulty appears, we are ready for the occasion. The 
way is being paved by the class of 1912, to make a 
lecord. It has been well begun and the close is going 
to see us with the silver Trophy, all of our class going 
out and good records left behind. 

The dust of ages may settle but the characters that 
are here molded can not be recovered. The reverberating 
here started on the strings of eternity will go on and on 
producing" harmony, until at last with one grand out- 
burst of greatness they will lea]) through space and 
claim the reward that is theirs because talent was used.

FRANK KENNEDY Class Historian 



In the third year of the reign of Bennetezer, Benne- 
tezer dreamed a dream wherewith his spirit was troubled 
and sleep failed him. Then the king commanded to call 
the Faculty together to shew the king his dream. 

And the king said unto them: "I have dreamed a 
dream and my spirit was troubled to know the interpre- 
tation thereof." 

Then spake the Faculty and said, "( )h King, live 
forever, tell thy servants the dream and we will shew 
the interpretation." 

Then Bennetezer, the king said, "1 dreamed I stood 
on the summit of Palatine and lo. a great multitude 
were approaching the city of Fairmont. From the East 
they came and from the West, from the North and from 
the South, and no man could number them for they 
were exceeding many and they were all armed and on 
their countenances was an expression of determination 
and each carried a pack. Now they were without com- 
mander or captain and each seemed to he his own gen- 
eral, vet they were all marching toward the Normal 
School as if to destroy it and I was afraid for my 
beloved Normal School and my knees did shake." Then 
said the king, "Tell me the interpretation thereof." 

Then stood forth Beerishazzer, the chief scrihe, and 
said: "Oh King, live forever, the interpretation is easy 
and I will tell thee the interpretation thereof. 

"The great multitude that thou sawest was the 
Freshman Class of the new School year and they are 
without number for new ones will continually join their 
ranks and the expression of determination that thou 
sawest is the result of a noble purpose to get a good 
education and the packs they carried were tilled with 
hooks and other ammunition and altho' they had no 
commander, they will soon organize and take this citadel 
by storm and carry it brick by brick to the uttermost 
parts of the town where they will erect a larger structure 
more suited to their needs. Hut before this shall occur 
there shall arise, during the first year, from their midst, 
mighty men of valor and these shall he called Garrett 
and Clayton and Wolfe and Musgrove and Kennedy 
and they shall keep the Sophomores busy in Basket Ball. 
Yea they shall even worry the Juniors and Seniors, 
whose Ten Commandments they shall break continu- 
ously and whose confusion they shall witness as so many 
brain storms. And there shall arise many mighty men 
from this Class whereof J may not tell thee now for 
the rest of the future is a sealed hook. 

Then rejoiced the king, Bennetezer, exceedingly, 
and began to prepare chapel talks and winter epiarters 
and a commissary department for this great multitude 
and every thing came to pass even as Beerishazzer, the 
scrihe, had said.

Among the many organizations of the Fairmont 
State Normal School there are none quite so extensive 
in range of action or sen e of thought as the Student 
Body Association. 

This organization comprises every student in the 
school. A fee of ten cents is charged each term for the 
purpose of defraying current expenses. The business 
is carried on as in any deliberative body, the officers 
being a president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, 
door-keeper, and an executive committee composed of 
five members. All students have equal rights in dis- 
cussing and voting on questions under consideration. 

The object of the Association is to unify the stu- 
dents, promote self government in the school, foster the 
social s drit of the institution, and to get the concerted 
action of the students on matters pertaining to them. 

This year the Student Body has had rive socials, it 
has sent flowers to some of the members who were ill, 
and in two cases has sent resolutions to the parents of 

deceased students, and last but not least it has brought 
two successful lecture courses to the school. 

The opportunity of this Association as a benefactor 
in the school is unlimited. If the officers are carefully 
chosen and discreet individuals, the business will be 
carried on according to parlimentary rules ; the art of 
putting a measure before the people and carrying it will 
he cultivated; the tactics of clean politics will be used 
and our young people will have had some real experience 
in life before they begin the struggle with the political 
world. There is also the possibility of the students of 
the Normal School becoming a self-governing body. 
Some schools are doing this already, and there is no 
reason why we should not. 

Let us realize that this organization means some- 
thing to us and let every student in school uphold this 
Association and stand by the best interests of the Fair- 
mont State Normal School. 

L. A. S., Historian. 


The Y. M. C. A. has grown to be one of the strong- 
est organizations of this institution. It stands for the 
promotion of the Christian spirit among the young men, 
and to this end it has enjoyed a year of great prosperity. 

We have received the hearty support of the Presi- 
dent and faculty, and of the local ministers, several of 
whom attended the meetings and brought with them 
some special message to the workers. 

The organization was represented at the Rochester 
Volunteer Conference at Rochester, N. Y. by L. A. 
Stark, and at the State Y. M. C. A. Convention at 

Charleston, AY. Va. by Carl Lawson. 

The Bible Class which met every Sunday afternoon, 
was very interesting, and from the study and discussions, 
a great many truths were revealed, and knowledge of 
the Bible was obtained that could not have been obtained 
in any other way. 

We realize that a great deal of good has been done, 
but we hope to continue to grow, and desire to make 
the coining year a better one than we have enjoyed this

this year, and we have been glad to receive about fifteen This club has been one of the most successful and 

new members into our pleasant circle. enjoyable organizations of its kind connected with our 

school life and we owe this almost wholly to the untiring 

efforts of one who, although her duties have been many 

and varied, has always welcomed us to her home and 

given us a pleasant and enjoyable evening. Thus when

Reading and Study of Plays, schooldays, and one, not least of these will be the 

Jokes. associations of the Shakespeare Club. 

Our club meets on Tuesday evening of each week 
in the delightful home of its president, and the order of 
program is : 


In tlif spring of 1908 a movement for the organiza- 
tion of the various counties and chilis of the school was 
started. The Monongalia students met and organized. 
They elected the regular set of officers and made the 
organization permanent. Each spring the president 
writes an open letter to the papers of his county stating 
the reasons that the young people wishing to prepare for 
teaching should attend the State Normal at Fairmont. 

The purpose of the organization is to keep in touch 
with all students from Monongalia county that have been 
in school previously; to correspond with the young men 
and women that are thinking of attending school; to 
help any students from Monongalia County in getting 
rooming and hoard and to help in arranging their work. 
The officers for the coming year are: 

N. G. MATTHEW, President. 

ROY NELSON, Vice Presided. 

MART IE KECK, Secretary. 


GLEN TOOTHMAN, Historian. 

The picture here shown does not show our entire 
delegation as many were absent from school on the 
evening it was taken. Last year there was an enrollment 
of more than forty students from Monongalia Co. It is 
not quite so large this year as it was last. Some have 
been joined in the holy bonds of wedlock, others have 
been kept away because of sickness and others have 
decided that they have all the education that they need. 

Last year this organization gave three young ladies 
to the graduating class. They were Miss Lulu Fetty, 
Miss Gertrude Creel and Miss Mary Knapp. This year 
the following persons will graduate : Miss Martie Keck, 
Miss Leona Martin, Miss Elizabeth Moon, and Mr. N. G. 
Matthew. Those who have taken part in the organiza- 
tion of the county feel that there is a great future for 
the young people of Monongalia County at the Fairmont 
State Normal School.

The football team last season was the strongest that 
has ever represented the Yellow and White. In fact, 
the athletes of F. S. X. S. are growing better every year 
and soon she will be taking her place among the smaller 
colleges in the athletic line. The managership made 
vacant by John Toothman's not being in school last fall 
was ably filled by the election of Homer C. Toothman. 
He took up the schedule with only one game contracted, 
that with 1). <!v E., and had a very successful year 
financially. Two trips were taken, one to Glenville the 
other to I'hillipi where the noted second battle was 
fought and won by the wearers of the Yellow and White 
although the game was lost by them by a 1 to o forfeit. 
Fine games were played at home. The only one lost on 
the home grounds was to D. & E. with a score of 5 to o.

The outlook for next year is strong. Mr. Glen 
Toothman has his schedule pretty well worked out now. 
Some dates remain unsettled but the schedule will likely 
include games with D. & E. College, W. V. W. C, 
Marshall College, Morris-PIarvev College, and some of 
the strong class teams from the W. V. U. Captain 
Parsons is a man who will get out of a team as much 
work as any one, and with the aid of a coach — and we 
surely will have one next fall — we ought to have a team 
that will make the loyal F. S. N. S. rooters toot their 
horns with glee, and slap resoundingly on one another's 





backs from sheer delight at seein^ 
the opponent's goal line. 

The old men who will likely be here next fall are: 
Ford, Captain Parsons, Hayes, Cobun, Musgrove, Mich- 
aels, Fleming, Garrett, and Morrow. Among the new 
football material that is coming to F. S. N. S. next fall 
are: Allen, from Sistersville H. S., Herbert Toothman, 
Mannington PI. S., Lawrence Griffin, Mannington H. S., 
Obidiah Moore, Mannington H. S., and perhaps a good 
man or two from Fairmont H. S. Some of the heavy 
fellows that have had hard school work this year thus 
interfering with their playing will he out with the squad 
next year. So all in all with a good schedule ahead and 
such a squad of players as we now have promise of 
having then surely the Yellow and White will Boat 
triumphantly next fall. 


Mr. Guy Matthew our yell master in the fall term 
conceived a grand idea and put it into practice, lie had 
a number of our old yells printed on slips of paper to- 
gether with a number of new ones. Try number four, 
our well known indian yell. It is a scalp lifter and 
never* failed to rouse our eleven bull dogs.

The Normal was represented by probably the 
strongest team that it has ever had. They lost several 
games by small margins as the scores will indicate, 
while they lost by large scores to the best teams in the 
state. The real hard trimmings given to the Normal 
were by two teams which are contending for the cham- 
pionship of the state; namely Parkersburg Y. M. C. A. 
and Elkins Y. M. C. A. 

Captain David Kennedy on account of private busi- 
ness resigned as captain and player in mid winter. This 
put a crimp in the team work and guarding, it being 
necessary to practice up a new man for guard. Cobun 
was therefore moved from forward and Hell substituted 
in his place. In a short time the team was gaining the 
pace again.

hoodo or god or goddess of hard luck chased the team to 
a great extent this year. When some one wasn't dis- 
abled we lost games by a margin of one point. 


The class basket ball league in its second year was 
a big success. The games were free but every body was 
a winner by attending and rooting for his class team, or 
by playing in a game for the honor of his class. 

The games were made more interesting" by the 
offering of a handsome bronze cup by Air. Oliver Shurt- 
leff to the team which wins the championship for two 
consecutive seasons. The Sophomores won the cham- 
pionship this year and as a reward were given a hand- 
some shield proclaiming the honor of having won one 
championship in the league. It behooves them in order 
to win the cup to win the championship next year as 
Juniors. If they do not the shield will be again pre- 
sented the winner and the cup still remain in the hands 
of the Athletic Association. The following was the 
standing- of the clubs at the close of the season:

The Midgets were a fast team of light weights we 
had in school, averaging 125 pounds. They played a 
number of games against teams which outweighed them 
but their lack of weig'ht was counter balanced by their 
swift team work and the scores showed that they were 
there when it came to playing the game. Their line up 
was as follows: Garrett, F. & C, Morrow, F. & C, 
McCuskey, F. & G., F. Kennedy, G., Morgan, F. 


The girls were quite active in basket ball this year. 
Several games were played between the hrst and second

The base-ball season is just on at a good pace when 
the Mound goes to press, so statistics and results will 
only be partial for the season. 

The team has the best line up in its history. The 
services of Manager Lew Hunt of the Fairmont team 
of the W. Va. League, as coach have been secured and 
he is dong well with the team. 

The season opened up rather strenuously for a team 
that had had only three days coaching. When we open- 
ed up with Bethany here and followed with two games 
in the next two days with West Virginia VVesleyan at 

Yet, Manager Conoway, who was elected to fill the 
place of Mr. Fay Amos who resigned, deserves much 
credit for the care and interest taken to give good base- 
ball to our students and patrons. 

Early in the season the team was handicapped by 
the accident to Ernest Bell, second baseman, which 
accident happened early in the first game with W. V. 
AY. C. and later for a short time by an accident to 
Lamb's left wrist and hand. 

Homer Toothman second basemen for the past 
three years was elected captain of this year's team and 
Mr. Lynde Bock of Farmington was elected assistant 
manager to become manager next year. Bock is an 
efficient business man and the normal may expect a 
good schedule next year. 

The line up of the team is as follows : 

Jay Snoderly Second Base and First Base 

Homer Toothman Catcher, Captain 

Harry Lamb Left Field 

J. L. Conaway Short Stop, Manager 

J. Lynde Bock First Base, Ass't Manager

The prospects for base-ball next year are very bright 
even now. Mr. Lynde Bock has been elected manager 
and lie is a hustling young man from whom every effort 
to get a strong team together may be expected. 

The Normal loses by graduation this vear Ernest 
Bell, short-stop, J. Lawrence Conaway for three years 
short-stop and this year at third base, and catcher. 
Homer Toothman, who the three years previous to this 
plaved second base. All the others of this year's team 
will be back and a number of the reserve team will make 
a fine showing for the team next year providing they 
are here. Among whom might be mentioned First base- 
man Carl Lawson, Colebank, outfielder; Earl Romine, 
catcher; Moore, catcher; Morgan, Starke}', pitcher; 
Stockdale. pitcher. 



This is the third year the Normal has been rep- 
resented on the track. Last year a strong' team rep- 
resented the yellow and white. 

Manager Arthur Garrett is busy training the held 
men and although no records have been broken, some 
good time has been made. 

Last we year were tied by the Fairmont Nigh, 
21 — 21, and lost to W. Va. YVesleyan by only one point, 
47 — 46. This speaks well for the hrst attempt. 

Manager Garrett is keeping the mails warm trying 
to arrange meets. 

Two mile run — Allen. 12 minutes, 40 seconds. 
One mile run — Darrell Kline and Reed Morrow, 5

One half mile — Garrett, 2 minutes, 15 seconds.

The Mound is out. Amid a great deal of advice 
but very little real help we have worked to make it 
what it is. It has been our endeavor to make this issue 
the best that has yet been published, since it is in keep- 
ing with the advancement of the school that the Mound 
should make an equal advancement. We will not dis- 
cuss its merits or its faults. 

We leave that to our readers. 

The contents of this Mound have been collected by 
the Editorial Board without partiality to individual or 
organization. All has been clone in a spirit of kindness 
and good feeling and it is our sincere hope that this 
book will be of some use and pleasure to every student 
and friend of the Fairmont State Normal School. 



Nan Hargrave sat at the window of her room and 
gazed at the hills which rose all around her home. She 
seemed to be in a thoughtful mood, yet often her eyes 
would glow with an inner fire. Presently she rose and 
passed out of the house to the porch. Here she was 
enabled to get a better view of the surrounding country. 
The wooded hills rose before her in all their grandeur. 
To the left the Valley river flowed with its murmuring 
song to join the restless streams which finally form, 
with "The Father of Waters," the water-way of the 
Sunny South. She could see the farm houses which 
dotted the hills and the valley, thro' which the river ran. 
A short distance from her home she saw the little coun- 
try school house, where she had spent her childhood 
days ; here she had fought her first battles, with books, 
in which she was always victorious, with boys, too, for 
she had never had a brother to defend her, and had 
openly fought the boys who intruded upon her rights. 
When her glance fell upon the school house, a shadow 
passed over her face, and she seemed for an instant to 
forget her surroundings, the look of a wounded animal 
came into her eyes, but with a start and shrug of her 
shoulders, the look of a man going into battle replaced 
the one of pain. 

She entered the sitting room where the family were 
seated about the cheerful fire, it being early spring, and 
was met by the remark. "What train do you take for 
the city to-morrow Nan?" "The 10:15 train, father," 
was the reply given in a cheerful tone. Then the coming 
journey was discussed with its varying details, for on 

the morrow, Nan would go to the city, some fifty miles 
distant to enter a professional school for the training- of 
teachers. She had always had a desire to become a 
teacher, and her father had at last consented for her to 
enter her chosen profession. As she was not going far 
from home the family would not feel the separation so 
much since she could come home frequently during the 

The next few weeks of Nan's life were trying ones. 
She had been on a visit to the city a few times, but then 
she had been among relatives ; now she was placed among 
strangers, and the feeling of loneliness and home-sick- 
ness, almost over-powered her, but that indomitable will- 
power and courage born in the women of the rugged hills 
of West Virginia would not own defeat, and gradually 
the feeling of loneliness was replaced by one of content. 

She was very much interested in her studies, a hard 
worker, but not a grind. She became a leader in all the 
affairs of her school life. No social function seemed 
perfected, unless Nan had a part in the planning. The 
boys soon learned to respect her, for she never feared 
to oppose the wrong, even if this entailed some strong 
argument on her part.. She always treated the boys 
with kindness and respect, they were comrades, friends, 
but they seemed to realize there was a line beyond that 
of friendship which no one dare pass. To the girls she 
was a jolly, loving schoolmate — always ready to con- 
done any slight offense, and forgive the offender, and 
the oirls came to know and trust her, but to question 
her or ask for confidences — never — for they soon learned 


"Nan" had no secrets, and if so, they were hers and 
hers, alone. 

Thus three years of her school life passed away. 
She had passed creditably her studies of her Junior 
year and entered on her Senior and last year in school. 

She had formed during her school years a friendship 
for one of the girls in her class which resembled the 
David and Jonathan compact of historical fame. The 
two girls were inseparable, where you saw Nan, there 
also you would find Marion Clark, a small delicate, 
brown haired, brown eyed maid, but Nan was wholly 
capable of caring for her. Marion who never dared 
defend herself, was strong in the might of her champion 
who never failed her. 

The girls were sitting on the campus one day in the 
beginning of the school year, discussing their work 
when Marion turned to Nan, with, "AYhat are you going 
to do next year, Nan?" "Teach of course, Marion, why 
do you ask ? " "Oh ! I supposed you would teach, but 
I thought you might travel, as I have often heard you 
express a desire for travel." "Perhaps I shall, sometime, 
Marion, but not now. Father needs me now and 1 
have been away so long I feel it my duty to stay with 
him. But 1 long to see some of the world, and I shall 

"But what will you do in that poky little village, 
Nan, I have often wondered why you cared to stay in 
a place so lonely. You never see any of your friends, 
unless they come to you or you go to them, which is 
seldom. I should think 3^011 would die of nothing at all 
to do, I'm sure I would" and Marion closed her eyes 
for a moment as if to shut out the vision, then suddenly. 

"\\ hy don't you marry, Nan, and leave the horrid lonely 

For a moment Nan did not reply, it was well for -her 
peace of mind as well as to still the questions which 
might arise in Marion's mind that she did not see the 
expression of pain that crossed Nan's face, but which 
as quickly passed. 

"Oh! I'm destined to be an old maid, Marion; I 
don't need a man to protect me you know," was the 
laughing rejoinder. 

Marion did not have time for a reply, for just then 
one of the boys came toward them across the campus 
and seated himself as if sure of a welcome. Robert 
Andrews was one of the best as well as the jolliest boys 
in school. He was a favorite with the professors as 
well as the boys. A giant in size, almost, as compared 
to most of the boys, a fine well proportioned, physically 
strong man. One who could well stand the knocks the 
world would eventually tender him. He was a favorite 
also with the girls, but he seemed to think they all 
deseiwed his championship, but of late he had been 
inclined to seek Nan and Marion. No one knew whose 
companv he preferred, and no one could very easily tell, 
since he could not talk to one without considering the 
other. Nan whose preference for none of the boys had 
been shown, was nevertheless, glad to welcome him at 
the present moment, so as to evade any more question- 

Rob was elated over a coming foot-ball game, with 
a rival school and knew he would find interested listen- 
ers. "We shall find a strong team to come up against, 
but our boys have been working hard and I think we 
can beat them" was his cheerful remark. "I am sure 


we shall, if our coach does his duty" Marion answered. 

Nan had been sitting in a deep study and at this 
looked up. "Who is the coach for the other team?" she 
asked, more to have something to say than the interest 
she felt in the question. 

"Jack Nefif" Rob answered, and went on with some 
estimates of the teams, as given by their best men in 
their athletic world. 

Nan's face turned pale and she was glad that Rob 
and Marion were so interested in the game, that they 
did not notice her embarrassment. 

The year passed all too quickly, and at last com- 
mencement week arrived. The ties of friendship were 
to be severed, and by some not to be reunited. Others 
would travel the path-way side-by-side. Such is school 
life. But looking on the darker side who can look back 
on their school days with aught but a feeling of pleasure. 
How pleasant in the years to come, when the world has 
tossed us about on its restless billows to enter the haven 
of memory, if only for a little while, hear again those 
dear familiar voices, see those well remembered faces — 
live our school days o'er again. 

Rob seemed loth to discuss the home going especial- 
ly when in company with Nan and Marion. It came to 
be the rule that you would always find him in their com- 
pany if it were possible for him to be there. 

Nan alone, seemed not to notice the significance of 
such a procedure and all unconsciously little by little 
won Rob's heart. 

The day preceding commencement day. Nan and 
Rob had taken a walk to a small park adjoining the town. 
Marion remained in her room pleading a headache. 
Rob seemed ill at ease and Nan tried to make him forget 

himself by being as jolly as only she knew how to be. 
They reached the park and Nan threw herself down in 
the shade of a large maple and taking off her hat began 
to fan, regardless of the fact that she was disarranging 
her hair. Nan's beauty lay in her hair. A mass of 
auburn changing to burnished gold in the sunlight just 
curling enough around the temples to lend an expression 
of mischief to the brown eyes beneath. Nan would not 
have been called a beauty, and yet her face was such a 
one as would make you wish to see it again. No one 
ever saw Nan angry, but those brown eyes could emit 
sparks of fire, if aroused by a good cause. 

"To-morrow is the beg'inning" and not the ending 
isn't it Rob?" was her careless query and she was 
surprised at the expression on Rob's face when he turned 
to her with, "No, it is the ending of all for me I fear, 
and yet I can only hope, and like all dying men grasp 
at a straw." 

Nan's face was almost blank in its expression of 
astonishment, but Rob did not wait for a reply. 

"Do you know why I asked you to come out here 
to-day. I was afraid to trust my fate where others 
might read. Nan do you know I love you and led you 
here that I might tell you so?" 

"Rob — I — believe me — I did not think — ." "I know" 
was his broken reply, "that is why I knew it was useless. 
1 knew you never thought of me except as a friend ; that 
is what has kept me silent so long'. I could not let you 
go out of my life without knowing it was impossible 
for you to take the place left vacant if you can not fill 
it. Please let me say what I started to tell you," for 
she had made an attempt to speak, but at this remained 
silent. "I shall not call my life a failure if vou do not 


share it. I have a work to do, and I shall try with all 
the strength I can command to make it worth while. 
I have tried to picture my life without you and the scene 
is a desolate one, but God helping me 1 shall try to 
become what 1 should, had you been there to help me. 
Is there no hope for me, Nan?" And Rob turned to her 
a face so passionately tender in expression, so hopeful 
in its pleading, that Nan hesitated to cloud it with what 
she must say. Before replying she took from her neck 
a slender gold chain, opening the locket attached to it. 
she held it out for Rob's inspection. He saw before him 
a boy's face, framed in by a mass of dark hair. The 
eyes which seemed about to speak were only strengthen- 
ed in their expression by the firm mouth and chin which 
stamped the face as one unusually strong. 

"That is my mascot, Rob, the face of the dearest 
friend I ever knew. Dear Jack, he died when only a 
boy, but I can not forget, neither would 1, the work he 
intended doing, and which 1 am left to accomplish as 
best I can. He was ambitious for himself but more so 
for others. Perhaps had lie lived he would have met 
with failure, but he was spared the pain of failure, lie 
planned for us both and when he knew he was going to 
die he asked that I carry them out. That is why I 
never suspected your love, because my heart was filled 
with ni}' plans for the future. This has filled my life, 
and I am glad that it is so. It is only a shadow of the 
pleasure I had planned for myself, but God thought it 
best that the shadow should be given me. 

1 am content, since I know it is his way. Life to me 
at times has seemed bitter, but I have tried so hard to 
make it sweet. Now I am going to try to help others 
who have not had the opportunity I have had. It means 

a struggle under difficulties, for the people have no 
ambition and seem satisfied with life as it is. I would 
not ask you to share this if I wished you to do so, and 
1 do not. You have planned your future and it is not 
right that you should change your plans for me. 1 can 
give you no hope. I am going to work as 1 see the 
right, and our paths in life may drift farther and farther 
apart. I know this decision of mine will not darken 
your life. You have given me assurance of that, and of 
such an ending of your hopes and plans, and 1 am glad 
for you. I shall always think of you as a man who 
knew his duty and did it. I would not cause you this 
pain if 1 could prevent it, but as it is the shadow of 
what might have been calls me and ] can not and dare 
not disobey." 

Rob gave the locket which he had been looking at 
careful I v, to Nan and as he did so clasped her hands in 
his own for a moment. 

"1 thank you Nan, for telling me this. More than 
ever I see my duty, and I shall try to follow the path 
over winch it leads me. Like you it will not be smooth 
sailing, but knowing you are struggling on where duty 
calls vou, will help me to fight on to victory. I shall 
try t<> be worthy of your friendship, and shall still hope 
that at some time vou will share my life and make it 
beautiful by your presence. Tell me of your plans. I 
wonder now why T never asked, but then I suppose I 
tried to make believe they would be mine." 

Nan told him of her home and its surroundings. 
Of the many young pepole growing up in ignorance. 
No church, a small school building, a store — these were 
the meager advantages of civilization. No books, few 
papers, no magazines; and Rob knew it would be a 


battle worth while, but the fire of conquest was in Nan's 
eyes, and he was glad she had seen her duty as it was. 

Ten years have passed since Nan's graduation. 
Years of work and its reward. Nan's face has grown 
loveler with an inner beauty and the fire is unquench- 
able in those soft brown eyes. Nan's life has been one 
of difficulties, but no one ever heard her complain. It 
has been a work of love and has succeeded even beyond 
her wildest expectations. 

She began with only a few girls in a reading club, 
she herself furnishing the reading matter. This circle 
widened to include the boys. Now there is a library of 
several hundred volumes. The homes of the boys and 
girls are supplied with good reading. The fathers and 
mothers saw what Nan was doing after she had worked, 
many, man}-, weary days, and they too became interested. 
The colleges know some of the boys and girls from the 

A young physician coming to notice before the 
public is one of Nan's boys. Several of her boys are 
filling responsible positions. A girl's college is spoken 
of very frequently in the neighborhood and three of the 
girls who will graduate soon, owe their start in life to 
Nan. Life is made broader and brighter for the whole 
neighborhood by the untiring efforts of one strong girl 
answering the call of duty. The people of the village 
are living cleaner, healthier lives, and are interested in 
something besides the gossip which hinders and never 

Nan is respected elsewhere outside this little world. 
She is known by many of the prominent educators, and 
the example of her life has helped many a weary soul 
to renew the struggle and battle of life. Nan grows 
younger, save the few threads of silver in the crown of 
burnished gold. Marion has been mistress of her own 
home for quite awhile, and Nan always finds a welcome 
awaiting her visits. 

The neighborhood is astir this June morning. The 
village has put on an air of importance. The center of 
attraction is the church, a modern brick structure, a 
statue of Nan's earnest endeavor. 

As we approach the church the organ peals forth 
a march strangely familiar, and we glance around as a 
hush comes over the room. Then up the aisle there 
come some white robed girls, carrying roses which they 
let fall in the pathway of a man and woman who advance 
to the altar. The man's face strikingly resembles that 
of a noted surgeon, whose pictures the newspapers have 
been publishing, and whose articles are read by all the 
profession. A man whose life has been well spent for 
mankind. While the man of God speaks the words 
which unite the lives of these two my thoughts have 
wandered back to my school days and when the solemn 
words are ended and the faces are turned to me — \ see 
again, glowing with a light that is not of land or sea, 
the faces of Nan and Rob, and the light which falls 
from the stained window casts no shadow on these two, 
but only a hallowed radiance which will shine for aye. 



Time honored cherished Normal, 

Thy walls to us are dear, 

Oh, how can we forget thee, 

( )r the times that we've spent here? 

Thy name we'll ever cherish, 

And for thy banner fight. 

Nor ever let it perish, 

The vellow and the white. 

Best we love the banner 
That waves o'er land and sea 
Proclaims to all, its freedom 
And blessed liberty. 
And then our colors waving 
We hail with fond delight, 
We'er one and all for saving 
The vellow and the white. 

We gladly sing thy praises 
And of thy heroes tell— 
Mow mam- brave hearts struggled 
Because they loved thee well. 
'Twill be our firm endeavor 
To stand up for the right 
1'rotect and keep thee ever, 
The vellow and the white. 

We'll then give to the Normal 
The honor that she's won. 
And let us hope her labors 
Have only just begun. 
And when we're called to duty 
To battle for the right, 
AYave on in all thy beauty, 
The yellow and the white. 



On the 29th. day of the third month which was the 
beg'innig of the spring term a great multitude of Fresh- 
men was gathered at the Normal. Now these Fresh- 
men were without knowledge and ignorance was deep 
seated upon their countenances. And they did walk 
through the halls with much clamor and loud noise. 
And they spake unto the upper classmen, saying', "Where 
is the Training Department that we may enter and 
find knowledge?" "Yea even show unto us the Training 
Dept. that we may observe and add to our wisdom." 
Now that same day when the bell had sounded five 
times thru the halls (for some Pharisee had monkeyed 
with the gong) the Freshmen journeyed to the Chapel 
and did sit in the seats not assigned to them by the 
Faculty, even in the seats of the Sophomores, Juniors 
and Seniors. And the Faculty entered and the President 
seated them upon the rostrum one male between two 
females seated he them. Then he opened his mouth and 
spake unto the Freshmen saying, "Young people ye are 
the salt of the earth et cetera." Whereupon the Fresh- 
men did make much applause. And their being many 
conflicts in the schedule the President straightway set 
about to diminish them. And when all the conflicts had 
been done away with but one and that one being Agri- 
culture, the President addressed the multitude saying, 
I have here two men, Rogers and Beer, either of which 
I will set over you as an instructor of Agriculture. 
AVhich will ye have?" Then the Freshmen being 
thirsty from much talking cried in one voice, "Give us 

Now in the afternon of the same day a foul odor 
arose from the regions of the lower hall and ascended 
toward the heavens. And the Freshmen inquired of one 
another saying, "What meaneth this stench?" And 
when none could answer them they grasped their noses 
and sought the open air. And the odor ascended to 
the sanctum of the Most High even unto the President's 
office. And the President was exceeding wroth, and he 
inquired into the matter saving, "What hoodlum has 
done this evil deed? Who hath been vile enough to 
generate this hydrogen sulphide?" And a Soph ans- 
wered him saying, "As f passed by the Laboratory door 
the odor was exceeding rank. Mayhaps Prof. Rogers 
hath done this deed." Then the President descended 
the stairs and spake unto Rogers saying - , "Hast thou 
done this?" But Rogers answered him, "Nay, nay." 
Then Rog'ers went forth into the hall and searched 
diligent! v but it profited him nothing for verily the test 
tube was concealed behind the radiator. And this was 
the evening of the first day. 

Now it happened on the morning of the second day 
that a host of pink posters were abroad in the land. 
Now these posters had been put up by the upper class- 
men and read as follows : 
Freshmen of the F. S. N. S. : 

I. Know ye by all these presents that ye are the 
scum of the earth. 

II. Miserable angle worms applaud no more in 
chapel lest ye be trampled upon and squelched. 

III. The insignia of your rank shall be a red cap 

with a green button on its top. Wear it on all occasions. 

IV. Ye shall not hold forth elsewhere in Chapel 
than the section assigned to you. Disobeying this rule 
is likely to cause a severing of thy writhing spineless 

V. Ye are as feeble children among this student 
body and ye shall be seen and shall not be heard. 

VI. Attend! Lead no applause of any nature 
whatsoever. Leave that to your superiors. 

VII. Crawling creatures you are forbidden to wear 
peg trousers, sweaters, high collars, loud socks, or ties 
for verily these privileges are reserved for those towering 
above you namely, the Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors and 

\ III. Scum of the earth! Bootlick not the Fac- 
ulty. Speak not to upper classmen. Tip your little 
red cap with its little green button to those whomsoever 
of them that may address ye. 

IX. Perform any act of service bidden of you by 
upper classmen, graciously and with a smiling counte- 

X. Hearken unto these commandments lest the 
yawning Monongahela receive thee unto itself and red 
chalk and a sharp edged splintry rail await thee on the 
i ither shore. 

And it came to pass when the Freshmen had read 
these posters that a great fear fell upon them and they 
were sore afraid. And they spake among themselves 
saying, "Who will protect us from this wrath which is 
to ciime?" And they cried aloud for the clock tower to 
fall upon them and hide them from the face of the earth 
but it would not. Then one of their number spake unto 

them saying", "Let us take this matter before the Presi- 
dent." And when the President had heard them he 
caused the bell to be sounded five times. And when the 
multitude had assembled in Chapel he arose and ad- 
dressed them saying, "Fear not O ye Freshmen. Pay 
no heed to these iniquitious posters for verily I say 
unto you they are the work of hoodlums and if I am 
able to find who hath done this deed they shall be cast 
forth from the school." Then he called one William 
surnamed Beer, a disciple of Sherlock Holmes, and said 
unto him, "Kind me the upper classmen who have joined 
the Mill Poster's Union that I may expel them." And 
Beer did as he was bidden and searched even unto the 
clock tower but he found them not. And this was the 
evening of the second day. 

And it came to pass on the evening of the third 
day that the Lyceumites made great feast and with them 
sat the Freshmen. And when they were all assembled 
the chief priest of the Lyceumites spake unto the Fresh- 
men saying, "Eat, drink and be merry for next Monday 
ye shall surely die for it has been prophesied that the 
Freshmen and Sophomores shall have a class rush and 
woe be unto for the the Sophomores are a mighty and 
righteous people. And they sat down and did eat and 
drink. And while they were eating and drinking the 
1 'resident came out into the hall. And he saw the 
captain of the Normal Fire Dept. connecting the hose 
to the water pipe. And the President inquired of him 
saying, "What doest thou?" And the captain said, "I 
am going to water the Freshmen for ] fear lest they 
are dry." Then the President said, "Waste not the 
water upon them for they have alreadv drunk much 
good punch." "Also I charge thee to put away the 

hose lest I expel thee." And while they were feasting" 
and making merry suddenly all the lights went out and 
they were left in utter darkness. And they seached for 
Moses but could not find him. And this was late the 
third day. 

Now it happened on the evening of the fourth day 
that the Student Body made a great reception and all 
the students and the Faculty were bidden. And when 
they were all assembled in the gym there were many 
introductions and much handshaking. And when every 
man had saluted his neighbor the President ascended to 
the rostrum and ordered that the entire multitude should 
form in line, one male with one female, and when this 
had been accomplished he ordered his chief musician to 
play. And when the music was started the procession 
marched forth from the gym into the hall and hack 
again. And when they had marched about five thousand 
cubits the President commanded them to stand still. 
Then he called upon certain of the chief men of the 
different counties to ascend the rostrum and speak to 
their brethren who had lately come to the school. And 
the air was filled with oratory and loud cheers. And 
certain members of the Faculty also spake. And when 
they had made an end of the speaking there was much 
music and dancing which continued even unto the third 
watch. And this was late the fourth clay. 

Now it had been prophesied that on the fifth day 
there would be a class rush. And it came to pass that 
shortly after the setting of the sun a mighty army of 
Sophomores assembled upon the mound. And the}- were 

strong of lung and did give many fierce class yells. And 
their women who were in the Dormitory sang songs and 
spake words of encouragement to them. And their cap- 
tains entreated them to stand firm around the Sycamore 
and said "ft is better that a Dormitory biscuit were tied 
about your necks and ye were dropped into the Monon- 
gahela than that the Freshmen should take the Mound." 
Then just before the second watch a mighty host of 
Freshmen were seen approaching from the Southeast 
corner of the campus. And when the Sophomore saw 
them approaching they girded up their loins and pre- 
pared to do battle. And when the Freshmen had come 
near to the Mound, suddenly they ran forward with 
great speed and attempted to rush the Sophomores, but 
the Sophomores fell upon them and smote them hip 
and thigh. And there was great slaughter. And after 
the captain of the Freshmen had collected his scattered 
army and encouraged them the}' again charged the 
Mound. And as the}- were being repulsed for the second 
time one of the Freshmen named Barbarow, who had 
been a mighty man even from his youth up, seized the 
captain of the Sophomores and carried him from the 
Mound. And when the Sophomores saw what had 
befallen their captain they fell upon the Freshmen with 
renewed energy and scattered them even as chaff upon 
the threshing floor. And the fighting continued even 
to the third watch and then the Freshmen having suffer- 
ed much severe loss retreated from the Campus and the 
hosts of the Sophomore were victorious. And this was 
the evening- of the fifth day.

Ode to the Editorial Board. 

Beneath the sod. full four feet dee]). 
Their toil worn bodies rest; 
Their souls triumphant vigils keep 
in regions of the blest. 

We know they've worn the martyr's wreath 
And have not gone below, — 
Foul Pluto has no woe beneath 
Like editor's earthly woe. 

Here sleep they all — the good, the brave 
The simple, and the wise; 
,\u epitaph sublime and grave 
Should meet the mourner's eyes. 

But no! their work is monument 
Their fame, the vears will show; 
While those who made them here lament 
Will languish down below. 

Suffice it now one word to say, 

To show their noble mind ; 

They struggled hard, both night and day, 

To please all human — kind. 

And so the}- died; of fate the toy; 
A prey to jealous greed; 
I bit in proportion may their joy 
Reward their glorious deed.

The Experience of Bub at the Normal School. 

Fairmont, W. Ya., May 30, 1910. 
Deer mut'her, 

it is with pleasure that i take my pen n my hands 
tu rite u a few lines tu let u know that i am well and 
able to chew my grub, i will now rite u a few lines tu 
describe my trip and stay in the Faremont State Normal 
Skule. U better believe i wuz skeered when i got on 
that thing the fellers call a tran. 

Everything just seemed to be flyin right in the 
oppersite direckshun frum the way we wuz goin which 
wuz the cans of my bein so badly skeered. Wall after 
stoppin at both ends of several houses along the way, 
an takin on peeple, we arrived awl O. K. 

jist comin frum the country an not havin on very 
fine close, the fust thing i dun when i clum off the keers, 
wuz to go tu an up-to-date hardwear store and buy 
myself sum finery. After buyin a gud pare uv overhalls 
a red shirt an a yaller necktie i perceded tu put them on 
which set me off vry nicely as i thot an then started 
out tu find the instertushun kalled the Normal Skule. 

After konsiderabel inquirin i found the plase an 
walked rite in. There sot a feller a sellin little strips in- 
paper tu the boys and gals fur tu drillers apeace so i 
hot wun tu, jist tu be in fashun and then i axed the 
feller whare I could find the preserdent of the shebang 
an he sez tu me "du yu want to see Dockter Bennet?" 
and i sez "law no man i'm not sick and don't have eny 
bizness with a dockter." "But" I sed "I wood be much 
erbleeged ef u wood tell me whare the preserdent uf 
this instertushun uv lurnin could be found." 

He sez tu me "the preserdent is out at present, u 
jist take this peace uv paper up to Miss Abbit the 
Libberian and she will classefy u." Now i didn't know 
what kind uv a dose this classefier wuz but i decided it 
woodn't kill me so i sez all rite and went rite into the 
Liberry and got classefied. 

The dose wuzn't neer so bad as i thot it wood be. 
When i handed my peace ov paper tu Miss Abbit she 
kinder sized me up an then sez. "du u know what you 
are goin to take?" and i sez tu her "i haint goin tu 
take nuthin. 1 jist want get classefied," so she tuck 
my peace uv paper and wrote the names uv the books i 
wuz tu study on the back uv it. Hear is the list: train- 
ing, rhetoric I, drawing I, agriculture II, geology, physi- 
cal geography, and penmanship. 1 wuz in need uv a 
good deal uv trainin so i tuck it fust. When i cum 
here i dident no what "F. S. X. S." meant but by takin 
sum trainin i have found it stands for "Fools Should 
Not Stay" so u sea I orter start fer home at unst but 
Dr. Mennett sez, "don't bee a quitter but stick rite tu it" 
so i beleeve I will stay. The next thing i tuck wuz 
Rhetoric I. I don't see why i couldnent have tuck 
Reteric 2 as well as Reteric I. 2 is better than one i 
think but they wouldn't let me take it. The nex' on 
the program wuz Ag'erculter 2. Bein a farmer boy i 
didn't sea any need uv takin Agercultur but i turned 
lots about farmin all the same. Sum peeple don't know 
why we plant taters wrapped in tissu paper. Do u? 
Its tu keep the sand outen their eyes uv korse. I lurned 
that in the Agercultur class. 


Geology is sumthin i know nuthin about so i wont the waiter an he jist punches a whole thru it and hands 

try to refine it. My fust drawin lessen wuz esy. Awl i it back tu me.

And tomorrow the work is done. 
And the critic will look at your book and say; 
Whether Life or Death you've won. 

Are you doing your best with your chances lent? 
Are you writing i.t plain and clear? 
Does it hold the record of a day misspent? 
Or bear the blot of a falling tear? 

Did you till the page of nineteen-nine? 
With deeds of love, to your fellow men? 
Will you do your best and try to find, 
Noble acts to record, on page nineteen-ten? 

Have you written a book that is bright and gay? 
Have vou worked with a master's hand? 
These questions the Critic will ask — and, aye. 
By your record, He will understand. 

You are writing the book of your life, my friend 
With the deeds of months and years — 
\nd the sheets must be strong and the colors blend, 
When the Critic of All appears.

portions are as follows:

Well I am here, have met lots of boys and think 
I will like it fine.

Heart to Heart Talks. 

(All questions will be answered to which the in- 
quirer's sigTi their full names ; no money is required, 
advice being- entirely gratuitous.) 

Leona M. — Self control is the secret of character. 
No matter how sorely afflicted you may be, learn to 
control your emotions and even if you can't succeed 
entirely, at least do not say "Damn" at a funeral. 

YVilla R. — Cocoa butter is recommended as a great 

Fred L. — You have my sincere sympathy in the 
pain which your sensitive nature must undergo in en- 
countering the disgusting profanity so prevalent in Ger- 
man Literature. I will endeavor however, to supply 
you with a few revised translations which, if carefully 
memorized, will spare you many embarrassing situations. 

"Tod und Verdamnis !" The very idea! 

"Donner und Blitzen." Gracious ! 

"Zum Henker !" Sakes alive ! 

"Geht in-die liolle!" Goodness me! 

By following these suggestions the innocent mind 
of the student may be spared many shocks. 

Jennie H. — Your lack of masculine admirers is un- 
doubtedly due to the shyness of the young men. You 
have possibly been a little too reserved and cold in your 
manner. You should endeavor to be frank and charming 
and to encourage them in every way you can. 

Neva K. — Perhaps, dear, it was due to your youth 
and inexperience that you took a moonlight stroll so 
late at night with the college youth, but it is reallv not 
pood form, so don't do it aoain. 

Ethel R. — No you should never go out at night 
without a chaperone. 

Blanche C. — I would advise you to read extensively 
on "Low Talking." You will find it quite beneficial. 

Grace F. — You should not worry over your inability 
to care as much for all classes as you do for the Seniors 
—It is perfectly natural for you know they are really a 
remarkably bright set of people. 

Ida N. — Do not complain. Be thankful that von 
can still shine by the reflected glow of your distinguished 
relatives. That at least is better than being totally 
extinguished, you know. 

Lila Claire R. — Your ambitions to reestablish the 
ancient customs of wearing the hair down the back is 
quite the proper thing. Heads were made a long time 
before rats and hairpins and there is no reason why 
your brain should be stunted in development by the 
constant pressure of a rat on your plastic skull. 

Enola W. — Yes, dear, your case approaches the limit. 

Alary W. — No, dear, it is not good form to sing so 
much or so loud as to disturb the surrounding neighbors. 

Bertha G. — 1 can not give you an answer to your 
Question. If you will send a stamped envelope to Geo. 
F. Phillips, Huntington, W. Va. He answers any ques- 
tions you may ask concerning this matter. 

Mayme R. — There is no reason why you can not 
attract admirers if you try. You know a winning smile 
always works charms. 

Floris Mc. — You may as well give her up, she has 
irredeemably slipped from you. Yes, you had better 


treat the winning' man as a friend, as indeed he may may cause him to commit a rash act by treating him 

prove to he in the end. thus. 

Ida O. — By all means wear a "Peter Tompson" Bly S. — No, dear, paint and powder do not aid one 

dress. It is the most enchancing dress a young lad}' to become beautiful, rather the reverse, 
of your age can wear. Callie N. — Yes, dear, I think the young man is 

Nelle B. — Xo, you should not lead the young man sincere in his -attentions to you; just wait and I have 

in think that you care for him when you do not. You no doubt but that he will propose in due time. 

Melancholy Days. 

Tlie hour is long and dry and dreary, 

It drags and the professor is never weary, 

For still he clings to his tiresome rot. 

We miss each word for we heed him not. 

And the hour is dry and dreary. 

Mv grades are low and harsh and dreary, 
( >f school and its tortures I am weary, 

Mv thoughts now turn to the man who passed. 
And the hopes of my Freshman year so vast. 

And my grades are low and dreary. 

Be still sad heart and cease regretting. 

For there are others who "E's" are getting, 
Thy fate is the common fate of all. 

Into each life' some flunks must fall. 
Some erades must be low and dreary, 

The Normal Lecture Course. 

The one mark of a progressive school is that it has 
a first class lecture course as a part of the regular year's 
program; that there is something more to he had while 
attending it than merely classroom work and references 
to the Library. The Fairmont Normal tried, in the year 
iCjoS-'ot). to give the students and the townspeople the 
opportunity of a first class lecture course. The course- 
was given but the promoters of it lost very heavily 
before the course ended. 

When school opened in Sept. 1909, some of tire 
students felt that the school ought not to go without a 
lecture course. Accordingly a Student Body meeting 
was called and the matter discussed. A committee was 
appointed to gather information concerning a course fit 
for our school and finances. After consulting Prof. Beer 
and Prof. Bavis a four-number course, from the Bock- 
way Lyceum Bureau was chosen, consisting of two musi- 
cal numbers, one lecturer, and one entertainer. 

The course was adopted by the Student Body and 
Mr. X. G. Matthew was made Business Manager. Mr. 

Matthew immediately set about to make it a financial 
success. After advertising the course thoroughly in the 
newspapers a systematic canvass of the town was made 
and before the first number appeared enough tickets 
had been sold to pay for the course. 

The course was as follows: The Dunbar Bell 
Ringers, Nov. 20; A. W. Lamar, Lecturer, Dec. 8; The 
Concert Trio, Jan. 3; and Pidelah Rice, Entertainer, 
March 30. 

The Dunbar Bell Ringers proved the hit of the 
season and many have, asked that they return. The 
entire course was pleasing to the students and received 
the approval of the most careful critics of our city. 

For the year 1910-11 a committee has been appointed 
and is now preparing a much longer and costlier course 
than was had last year. Mr. C. B. Lee has been elected 
Business Manager for the year and with such an ener- 
getic fellow as Mr. Lee with the ever present and valu- 
able help of Prof. Beer the course will prove more suc- 
cessful this vear than last. 


Thoughts Suggested by the Final 
Grades in Mathematics. 

High in the midst, surrounded by the Faculty, 

Sits Prof. Mercer dignified as Malachai ; 

Seated in his chair of state he seems a god 

While Seniors, Juniors, Sophs, and Freshies tremble 

at lu'x nod. 
They sit, pale and fearful, miles away from glee, 
Listening to him ] renouncing that fatal grade of "E"; 
Denouncing dire reproach to luckless fools 
Too unskilled 1<> plod in mathematical rules. 
Geometry and Trig arc both such easy stunts 
So why are there so many unnecessary flunks? 
When the teacher is with all Euclids axioms possessed, 
Why shouldn't his pupils be smarter than the rest . J 
Happy is the youth whose scientific pate 
Class honors, medals and fellowships await. 
If in Arithmetic he wants to get a oass 
The pupil must deserve it, be the lad or lass 
In an Academic course or even Cupid's art 
It is not necessary that he thoroughly play his part. 
Hut, oh, to Hunk in Algebra is the worst that could befall 
To anyone that was ever known to grace the Normal

A maiden fair with sun kissed hair 
Came tripping down the street ; 
Her face serene here age sixteen 
Gee-whiz but she was sweet ; 
On the sidewalk slick she came down quick 
With a jolt that shook her curls; 
The words she used, must be excused 
For she is one of the Junior girls. 

Nelle Manley the saucy kid 

Once loved a fellow named Sid 

But she has a new fellow of late. 

And since he is so young and his mother's joy, 

We hope he won't meet a sad fate.
